Today I want to share with you two weeks of Project Life and next week I plan to share some tips on how to "catch up" when you feel like you're behind. In the meantime lets move on to week 36 from September.
This week is for those of you who have shared your concerns about what to do when you do not have many photos. You will see I included only one picture is this weeks spread. This was the first week where I was only down to one, but you know what? I wasn't worried. There seems to always be something to place in those slots! If you look closely you will see I received a speeding ticket... yes I included it in there and it is a good reminder for me to pay attention.
Treasured Memories, and slide the journaling in them. Then I just added a couple sheets of patterned papers/Hambly transparency to give variety, along with some more journaling cards and before you know it... the slots are filled up!
Cavalia a show me and Arlene went to see. It was fantastic and I managed to collect those die cut leaves knowing I would place them in my PL album.
A Project Real Life update: I am enjoying the Project Real Life class and the messages Becky is bringing us about cultivating a better life. It definitely has me thinking about things differently. This weeks message is about living in gratitude, not just during happy moments, but to take the time to reflect daily on what you are grateful for. None of this is new for me and I'm sure it isn't new for you either, but there are things I can improve on and that will be my focus. I have a little book now at my bedside and I plan to look back on my day and write down what I am grateful for. Here are a couple experiences from Tuesday:
- I start work earlier now and arrive at the office at 0715. Most mornings I think about how early it is and wish I could still be in bed! I watched an incredibly beautiful sun rise and it made me think there are some people who would love to be able to see this.
- A close friend made me laugh today and I really wanted to take some time to acknowledge how much I appreciate and value our friendship so I made her a card.
